Ann Mitchell is set to perform Suffragettes UNITE! at the 2019 KeyBank Rochester Fringe Festival on Thursday, September 19th, at 6:30 pm at the The Avyarium Theatre (274 Goodman St. N. Suite D242 – located at The Village Gate, Entrance B – 2nd floor).
Suffragettes UNITE! is a theatrical portrayal of select woman’s suffrage leaders’ speeches orated during the long battle for the woman’s right to vote. Ann Mitchell opens her ‘women’s convention’ with the words originally spoken by Sarah C. Owen in Rochester.
Mitchell’s portrayal features the rhetoric of the 19th language written as spoken by Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott and Susan B. Anthony.
The one – woman costumed performance culminates with a musing, “On Being A Woman” written by Ogden, NY school teacher Sarah Jennie McCleery in 1883.
